This free 2 hour hands on tutorial will introduce you to creating a computer “in the cloud” and logging into it, via Amazon Web Services. We’ll create a small general-purpose Linux computer connect to it, and run a small job, while discussing the concepts and technologies involved.

Participants should plan to fill out a brief survey before and after the workshop. No certifications or attendance records will be kept for this workshop and there is no plan to record this interactive workshop.
